Matt Ottignon is the main man behind Australia's grooving jazz outfit Mister Ott. Together with a talented group of musicians he just released "Single Shot", the second album by the group which is packed with a brand of jazz that draws influences from Ethiopia with a unique psychedelic twist.
What certainly stands out are the infectous rhythms which range from mulatuesque stompers to uptempo afrobeat shakers. But "Single Shot" is also about building and breaking down of arrangements and atmospheres. "Space Will Win", the ending track, is a tunes that will take you on one of those journeys where psychedelic keys and spacy sounds suck the listener in and slowly build to an impressive jam along lines of simple melodies.
